Grow Lights: One of the Most Important

Hydroponic Supplies to Grow Your Crops

O

nce you have decided to start a hydroponic garden, you will have to

consider a number of important things. Of course, you need to have

ample space to start your garden, but you need to spend some

money to find the best hydroponic supplies. You need to find the right types

of trays, filters, pumps, reservoirs, nutrient solutions, and of course grow

lights. While you will have to educate yourself about different hydroponic

supplies, you may find yourself confused when buying grow lights. The

reason is that there are many different types of grow lights and they all have

their pros and cons. Here is a bit about different types of grow lights to help

you make a right choice:

Incandescent Lamps: These are standard household bulbs that you will

find in your home. You can use them, but it is better to avoid because

they are very inefficient. In fact, their efficiency rate is no more than

5%. Moreover, the spectrum of light that these bulbs produce is not

suitable for indoor plants. Another issue is that they produce a lot of

heat, which makes them quite ineffective when it comes to hydroponic

plants.

Fluorescent Lamps: They are quite popular and work well for indoor

plant growth. In terms of efficiency, they are at least 5 times more

efficient as compared to incandescent bulbs. They use less electricity

and produce a reasonable amount of light. If you want to use these

bulbs, be sure to go to a store selling hydroponic supplies and ask for

high- output fluorescent. Just keep in mind that you may be better off

trying other grow lights if you have large plants because they light

they produce cannot penetrate deep into those plants. You may find

compact fluorescent lamps more effective in this regard.

HID Lamps: You can also put your money on HID lamps to help grow

plants indoor. Growers can choose from different types of HID lamps,

including metal halide bulbs and high-pressure sodium bulbs. You may

want to put your money on these lamps when you are interested in

lighting large areas they are quite suitable

lighting large areas. They are quite suitable for hydroponic gardens

because of their high light output. They use a bulb along with an

electronic or mechanical ballast. In terms of efficiency, they are much

better than incandescent lamps. The only issue is that they come with

a limited lifetime and are likely to fail at any time.

LED Grow Lights: If you are looking for the most reliable option, you

can certainly put your money on LED lights. They are available in

different sizes and produce different spectrum of light to ensure that

your plants can use the light for proper growth. LED growl lights come

with several years of guarantee and are available at almost all stores

selling hydroponic supplies.

The fact of the matter is that it is natural to feel confused when looking for

the best grow lights, but you can make things easier by educating yourself

about different types of lights and pros and cons associated with them.
